First glimpse of two new stations for H&F

Travellers have their first glimpse of how the stations they commute from in the future might look.

Transport for London has release computer-generated pictures of two proposed new Overground stations in the north of the borough, at Old Oak Common Lane and Hythe Road.

They form part of the massive regeneration of the Old Oak area which includes 25,500 new homes as well as creating 65,000 jobs.

The stations would become hubs for HS2, connecting London with the Midlands and the North, and would link the new east-west Elizabeth line and HS2.

Alex Williams, TfL director for city planning, said: “These two potential new stations would support the regeneration at Old Oak and Park Royal, building on the benefits of HS2 and the Elizabeth line and supporting new homes, jobs and opportunities for thousands of Londoners.”

Hythe Road would be on the West London line, on the Car Giant site, 700 metres from Old Oak Common station. The plan is for a giant open-ended ‘shed’, protecting passengers from the elements.

Old Oak Common Lane station would be on the North London line, and would include pedestrian and cycle lane links to Victoria Road.
